The Philadelphia 76ers (known as the Sixers) is a professional basketball team located in Pennsylvania. They were founded in 1946 and originally were known as the Syracuse Nationals, and are also one of the oldest teams in the NBA. They moved from Syracuse, NY to Philadelphia in 1963, and held a contest to decide on their new name. The 76ers were chosen as a “tribute to the gallant men who forged this country’s independence” in 1776. The Sixers are now a member of the Atlantic Division, which is in the Eastern Conference of the NBA. They play their home games at the Wells Fargo Center, also located in Philadelphia.
